I’m exuberant over Exuviance Eye Complex and Intensive Eye Masques

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex and Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

As an avid fan of eye cream I was probably a little overexcited to receive Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex. Then the excitement doubled when I found out that they also sent their Intensive Eye Treatment Masque. Two favorites for me to relish!

Exuviance and NeoStrata are sister companies and two lines I tried years ago and have wanted to become reacquainted with again. I envy my blogger friends when I see their reviews from these lines since my past experiences have been wonderful.

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex is a beautiful light to the touch eye cream that I’m enjoying to the max. It feels soothing on, blends in nicely so that I don’t feel stickiness under my eyes, and is loaded with good for my skin ingredients.

  • Formulated with Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid (PHAs)
  • Provides antioxidant protection
  • Contains Vitamins A, C, and E
  • Hydrates with a soothing blend of botanicals

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

This soothing eye cream is good for wrinkles and fine lines. My undereye area feels well hydrated and I feel like the ingredients are good anti-aging ones.

Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex

I’m sad that I’m almost done with the jar since it’s been such a pleasure to use. It’s fragrance free as all eye creams should be and at $44 it’s well priced for such a quality product. Right now their website has 20% off and free shipping so it’s a perfect time to try this for yourself.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masques

Regular readers of Beauty Info Zone know that I’m a mask afficionado and using these eye masks from Exuviance has been a treat. I’ve got one pack left for this weekend and I know that my appearance will be better because I’m going to use these again. The Intensive Eye Treatment Masques are wonderful for the delicate eye area.

There are 12 packets, each containing 1 undereye mask. They don’t feel mask like, they just feel like I’m adding lots of moisture and protection to my undereye area. They are a quick fix but they give me long lasting results.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masques

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

It takes just 10 minutes (though I’ve left them on longer at times) and doesn’t leave a film behind. I massage the serum that’s left after onto my skin to continue minimizing the look of my fine lines.

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

Besides being a soothing treatment they are good for undereye puffiness. The anti-oxidants protect against free radicals for aging skin. I find that the results last for about 2 days.

  • Lactobionic Acid refreshes and soothes
  • Bionic treatment firms skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Vitamins A, C, and E provide antioxidant protection and restore skin

These masques and the eye cream are wonderful companions but if you can only get one I’d suggest the Hydrating Eye Complex since I’ve seen long term results with it. That doesn’t mean that Saturday night won’t be enhanced with an Intensive Eye Treatment Masque prior to apply my makeup. I’m ready to pull out all the stops for a night out. Have you had the pleasure of using Exuviance products?  —  Marcia

Alert eyes with The Ordinary and Hylamide

One of my Pinterest boards is named “It’s All About the Eyes” and that happens to be my mantra. I’m always looking for new eye products whether they are eye shadows, eye liners, mascara, or eye creams and serums. That is where most of my money goes and that’s what I get the most excited about using.

Last year I was shopping at CVS and saw a display for Hylamide products. I’d heard the name and considered purchasing their foundation but once my eyes settled on Subq Eyes my decision was made. With my CVS coupon I purchased this $35 Eye Serum and promptly forgot about it. So me!!

Hylamide Subq Eyes

Once I started learning about The Ordinary and went to make a purchase of their products I remembered about Hylamide Subq Eyes and began using it. The two products I’m writing about today, Hylamide Subq Eyes and The Ordinary Caffeine Solution, are adjuncts to the other eye creams and masks I use. I use these in addition to everything else because “it’s all about the eyes”.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution and Hylamide Subq Eyes

Starting with Hylamide Subq Eyes Advanced Serum. According to the company this is good for immediate and longer-term visible correction of under-eye aging, puffiness and dark circles. My eyes are guilty of all of the above. This serum is for under the eyes and not on your eyelids. I use this at night right after I’ve cleansed my face so that I can let it dry before applying more skincare.

Hylamide SubQ Eyes

This  fragrance free product is in between a serum and an eye cream in my opinion. It’s thicker than most serums. The bottle has a pipette for application but I find that it’s too thick to use it for that. I usually just use my finger to get the serum off the pipette. It’s very possible that mine is a little old since it sat for a good year before I touched it, so I’m not sure if the texture changed.

Hylamide SubQ Eyes

I don’t see immediate results of this eye serum but that’s mostly because I only use it at night but I do see the cumulative results with clearer skin under my eyes.

“Contains a Flavanoid Glucoside Bio-active to reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes

Contains a Darutoside complex for a lifted upper- and lower-lid appearance

Contains a Waglerin-1 Peptide Complex shown to reduce the look of dynamic lines around the eyes

NONAPEPTIDE-3 RETINO-COMPLEX
A novel technology that promotes better visible anti-aging results than Retinol with less irritation

FLUORINATED PERFLUOROCARBON COMPLEX
An extraordinary technology that offers a lifted-look to the eye contour immediately with a lasting visible effect with continued use.”

Next is The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% +EGCG, a product I’ve learned to love. With all the talk about The Ordinary and especially this solution you’d expect miracles immediately. But give your eyes time to get the full benefits and you won’t want to stop using it.

Deceim The Ordinary Caffeine Solution

“This light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves. Independent studies have shown that topical use of each of caffeine and EGCG can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.”

I’ve known for dozens of years that caffeine is good for puffiness on our undereye area and I’ve used eye creams that contained it but this one is different. For $6.70 you’ll find a thin but not watery serum.

Deceim The Ordinary Caffeine Solution

You need just the tiniest amount. I barely allow any to touch my finger and it’s enough to do both of my eyes. I use this in the morning before I apply anything on my face. At first it feels a little oily, then a little dry, and finally it’s not noticeable at all. I definitely notice a difference in my undereye area on the days I use this. I’ve used it at night too though I live out of two bathrooms and I hate transferring products so it’s now a day asset for me.

Both brands are cruelty free and vegan as well as oil-free and silicone free. Both are products I’d recommend using. BUT… The Ordinary Caffeine Solution is the one I know I’ll keep up with after these bottles are gone. It’s a top seller for the brand and they have trouble keeping it in stock. I’m glad I stuck with it and I’m happy to see that it makes my mantra come true.  —  Marcia

Eminence Organic Skin Care has all you need for eyes: Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream and Cucumber Eye Gel

Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream and Cucumber Eye Gel

Lately my eyes have been looking tired and puffy so I went on a quest to find a perfect solution. I don’t want to look tired when I’m not tired! I found a perfect combination of eye products from Eminence Organic Skin Care, a line I have obsessed over ever since a fabulous facial I had back in 2013. These two beautiful products are truly a dynamic duo that make my eyes look amazing. This is a dreamy combo for gorgeous, youthful-looking eyes.

Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream

Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream

Eminence Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream ($96) is an eye treatment wand with a cooling roller ball applicator. It does all sorts of things – de-puffs eyes, smooths out wrinkles, gets rid of dark undereye circles, tightens up sagging skin. The Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream has wonderful ingredients:

  • Hibiscus: firms and lifts skin; increases skin’s elasticity; rich in antioxidants (anthocyanosides) to combat free radical damage
  • Ice Wine Active: instantly lifts and tightens; clinically proven to instantly smooth wrinkles
  • Caffeine: anti-inflammatory; constricts blood vessels to reduce swelling and puffy, dark under-eye circles; dehydrates fat cells to make skin appear smoother
  • Hibiscus Seed Extract Peptides: natural neuropeptides derived from hibiscus seed relax the facial muscles to diminish the look of wrinkles
  • Green Algae: promotes the development of cell proteins to tighten tissue and smooth skin
  • Stevia Extract: minimizes stress induced involuntary muscle contraction that leads to the formation of wrinkles, decreases wrinkle depth, skin roughness and increases hydration

    Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream

    Eminence Organic Skin Care Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream

The eye cream is stored in the body of the applicator. You just twist the handle and the cream comes out around the cooling, stainless steel rollerball, which then massages the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream into the undereye area. This is an excellent way of massaging those lymph nodes and really taking care of puffiness. It’s a beautiful thing!!

Eminence Organic Skin Care Cucumber Eye Gel

Eminence Organic Skin Care Cucumber Eye Gel

I like to follow the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream with the Cucumber Eye Gel ($68) , an Eminence Organic Skin Care bestseller that continues to guard against puffiness and also protects the skin from free radicals. The cucumber is so soothing and cooling, and the gel is very moisturizing and hydrating. Ingredients include:

  • Cucumber: revitalizing and toning
  • Wild Hops: rejuvenates skin’s appearance
  • Shea Butter: moisturizes and repairs the look of skin
  • Bearberry: reduces the appearance of age spots and blotches
  • Evening Primrose Oil: soften and soothe the appearance of skin

    Eminence Organic Skin Care Cucumber Eye Gel

I like to use this in conjunction with the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream because it helps reinforce collagen fibers while it supports drainage and keeps puffiness down. It is super moisturizing and lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and in general promotes skin health.

The combination of Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream and Cucumber Eye Gel is a real one-two punch for tired, puffy eyes that I think is a total knock out! You can find Eminence Organic Skin Care products online and at Dermstore, as well as in spas and salons in North America and Canada.  – Lisa

A triple for your eyes: brows, lashes, and dark circles

samplesaffiliate links

There are a plethora of wonderful products to help improve our eyes. These weren’t available long ago or they would have been hard to find but now we can learn so much online. That’s why we love sharing some of our finds with you. Today my team has hit a triple starting with EES, Essential Eyebrow Solution. Then we ran down to our lashes and there’s PRIORI, Lash Recovery Serum. And for bases loaded there’s VI Derm, Revitalizing Eye Cream.

EES, Vi Derm and Priori

The reason I was eager to try EES Essential Eyebrow Solution is because of my meager eyebrows. They aren’t what they used to be. A combination of age and illness have chipped away the lusher eyebrows of my “youth” and left me with sparseness, especially at the start of my brows. When I began writing on Beauty Info Zone my brows weren’t an issue. I took pictures and realized later that I hadn’t touched my brows. Not so today. I must do my eyebrows.

EES Essential Eyebrow Solution

That means I need some extra help and that’s where EES has come into play. I don’t have before/after pictures since they aren’t dramatic but what I do have is fuller brows that look so much better when I apply my eyebrow cosmetics.

EES is infused with natural botanical black cohosh, EES™ is a patented formula that nourishes brows to help support lasting fullness, conditions brows to promote strength, suppleness, and shine, and revitalizes eyebrow hair, resulting in the appearance of thicker, fuller eyebrows.

EES, Essential Eyebrow Solution

EES is a clear liquid in a blue bottle. Use a fresh end of a cotton swab to apply. Don’t double dip. There’s a slight smell of alcohol but it’s a non-issue since it’s not noticeable. It dries down pretty quickly but I give it at least 10 minutes before I apply my brow makeup.

To see full results it’s recommended that you use this twice a day on clean brows for 90 days. A 1 oz bottle ($90) will last the full 90 days so you should be able to see results. While you won’t look like Groucho Marx (thank goodness) you will have fuller brows that don’t embarrass you.

Priori Lash Recovery System

Moving on to second base you’ll find PRIORI Lash Recovery Serum. Another problem for me is my eyelashes. It’s not like I ever had those gorgeous lush lashes that I see on others but they were fuller at one time. I’ve used a variety of lash serums so this isn’t my first trip to this ballpark.

Priori contains Triple Lipopeptide Complex to help with both brows and lashes. I’ve only used it on my lashes since I don’t like to use the same tube for both.

When I started using PRIORI my lashes weren’t batting very well. They had lost some of their oomph and their batting average was falling. I was obviously in a slump. But with time PRIORI has made a difference and I’m extremely happy about that. One day I realized that I had something going on when I put on my mascara. So I tried different mascaras and my lashes still looked lusher. I like the very fine wand that is used for application, it’s like applying liquid eyeliner but you don’t have to worry about smudges.

PRIORI Lash Recovery Serum contains Vitamin E and peptides to help with the growth. At $99 it’s not inexpensive but it works and that’s what’s important to me. At the moment Dermstore has 25% off for their anniversary so it’s a great time to purchase.

My life isn’t complete unless I’ve got a good eye cream in play. My triple base hit includes one of those with VI Derm Revitalizing Eye Cream. I’m an eye cream afficionado and it’s my strong point. I may be a leftie but I can hit it out of the park with the right eye cream. What I find with VI Derm is that it’s helped greatly with my dark circles and fine lines. I was also using The Ordinary Caffeine Eye on and off with VI Derm but I used it alone for the first several weeks so I know that it worked well.

Here are the key ingredients and what they do

  • Eyeseryl® Tetrapeptide-5: reduces the appearance of puffy eyes
  • Syn-Coll®: Tripeptide-3: reduces the appearance of wrinkles and firms the skin
  • Haloxyl™ Tetrapeptide-7: reduces pigment responsible for dark circles under the eyes
  • Hyaluronic Acid: retains moisture to plump the skin

Don’t tell me that you don’t want that happening for your eyes because I won’t believe it. Depending on my sleep habits the puffiness is usually not evident in the morning. My undereye area is lighter and brighter plus I’m just not noticing the fine lines. And it’s not that I need new glasses or a stronger magnifying mirror – I’ve got both! You don’t need a lot of VI Derm Revitalizing Eye Cream to make a difference.

So now my bases are loaded and I’m hoping that the next batter will come through with a great hit to get my eyebrows, eyelashes, and eyes in general to come home and score. Tune in next week to see if that happens!!  —  Marcia

RoC those wrinkles away with Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum, Eye Cream, and Multi-Correxion Chest, Neck and Face Cream!

Rowenta Steamer photo from amazon.com

samplesaffiliate links

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just steam away our wrinkles like a steamer? Just roll out of bed, grab our handy little iron, and steam those fine lines away? Maybe someday in the Jane Jetson future.In the meantime, I’m happy that I’m a RoC Ambassador because I get to sample some terrific products that help visibly reduce deep wrinkles and help with fine lines. I’ve got both so I need to reduce them and keep any new ones from forming.  

The three main areas of concern for me are my eyes, my neck, and my face – especially around my mouth area. RoC has me covered in all areas!

RoC Deep Wrinkle Serum

RoC Deep Wrinkle Serum

With RoC Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Serum ($23) the longer you use it, the happier you will be with the results. The silky serum feels great on immediately and plumps up skin right away and with consistent use your skin becomes extremely happy and wrinkles truly do dramatically improve. Ingredients include Roc Retinol along with magnesium, zinc and copper to bring renew skin and to help bring newer skin to the surface.

  • This anti-aging formula is clinically proven to help visibly reduce both fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • After four weeks, skin appears more radiant, fine lines are smoothed and skin firmness is improved
  • After eight weeks, crow’s feet are visibly reduced and discoloration is diminished
  • After twelve weeks, deep wrinkles are visibly reduced
  • The formula glides on easily and absorbs quickly leaving your skin feeling smooth and velvety and is ideal for use under makeup

    RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream

    RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion® Eye Cream ($23) is a great eye cream that tackles puffiness and dark circles, two problems that only seem to get worse for me the older I get. Regular use of this eye cream truly reduces the look of wrinkles and crow’s-feet. Another plus – this has no fragrance.  RoC® Retinol Correxion® Eye Cream is just one of the great eye creams that RoC® produces, but it’s my favorite and the one I choose over and over.

RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30

RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30

I know, I know, I am always on my soap box about paying extra attention to the decolletage. But that is the FIRST place that aging skin shows up! We take great care of our faces, but often forget our necks – that means no sunscreen, no treatment serums, no collagen support. The RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($28) is fabulous in several ways. It really is everything you need from your chest on up to your forehead. I see immediate results in terms of dryness and skin tone and after four weeks there is a definite improvement in sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Ingredients include the famous RoC Hexinol Technology as well as tons of vitamin E, which specifically targets the 5 signs of aging:  discoloration, sagging, dryness, dull skin tone and wrinkles. Plus, it has an SPF of 30 so it protects against the harmful rays of the sun.  The cream itself is absolutely beautiful – thick and creamy, yet it absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft and satiny. The rich cream and the elegant formula makes the Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream a huge winner.

We are still a long way off from any miracle product like a Jane Jetson mask or a steam iron that takes wrinkles immediately away, but for great skin care that takes of you today and for the long haul I love RoC Skin Care.  – Lisa

DERMAdoctor’s new Kakadu C line is a skincare lover’s delight (giveaway time)

DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C shelf at Ulta

DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C shelf at Ulta

This giveaway is a partnership with Nakturnal

I was recently alerted to a new line from DERMAdoctor so I took myself to Ulta to check it out. The more I saw, the more I learned, the more I wanted! As an admitted skincare lover these DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C products look amazing. I know they smell amazing too – well actually they are fragrance free which makes them smell amazing to me!KakaduC_1

Kakadu is a tree that is native to Australia which grows the Kakadu Plum, a unique Vitamin C source. It contains about 55 times the amount of vitamin C as a Florida orange does. According to an article I read on StyleCraze the uses for this natural product has over 10 benefits to us. Being so rich in Vitamin C makes it an ideal anti-oxidant in skincare as it helps slow down the aging process.

In my research I came across an article on Health With Food that talks about Vitamin C and Kakadu Plum: “But why are vitamin C rich foods, such as Kakadu plums, so good for you? For one thing, vitamin C plays a crucial role in keeping your immune system, bones, teeth, and gums strong and healthy. It can also help keep your skin supple due to its ability to stimulate collagen production, and it may help prevent iron deficiency by improving the body’s capability to absorb iron from foods. Vitamin C may also have allergy-fighting properties due to its ability to prevent histamine release and to stimulate detoxification of existing histamine in the body.

DERMAdoctor harnessed the use of this amazing Vitamin C source from the Kakadu tree to bring their line of Kakadu-C products to market.

Among the products in this great line are a few I found noteworthy. The Kakaju C 20% Vitamin C Serum seems outstanding. This daily rejuvenating essential assists in brightening and evening skin tone while leaving skin feeling firmer, smoother, tighter and complexion looking more radiant. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of each serum will be donated to the Kimberley Training Institute of Western Australia to help build Aboriginal community enterprises based on the Kakadu Plum. As someone who loves a great serum this one has caught my eye.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

The first product I opened at Ulta was the Kakadu C Eye Souffle. This was as light as air yet felt so decadently rich.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

Judging by the amount of people that sampled this at the store it’s obviously quite popular too. This brightening eye cream hydrates, smoothes and firms delicate skin for a more ageless appearance.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme

This DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme has my nose’s approval. This has a rich and hydrating feel to it. It’s meant for dehydrated, sensitive and mature skin so I know this would be great for me. Additional ingredients are Kakadu plum, Desert Lime and Quandong Peach extracts and enhanced with tripeptide technology.kakadu-vertical-product-banner

Since we can’t take a trip to Australia to find this ingredient we can get it with DERMAdoctor’s Kakadu-C line. There are several kits too to try out the products so you can see what it will do for your skin. Happily we were offered a giveaway for one of our Beauty Info Zone US subscribers to win the DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C Eye Souffle. Allure magazine considers Kakadu Plum to be one of the newest must-have ingredients and you could be in on that.

To enter follow the directions on the Rafflecopter. This giveaway will end on June 2, 2017 at 11:59 and the prize will be sent by Nakturnal the sponsor of the giveaway. Good luck!  —  Marcia

VENeffect is anti-aging skincare at its fragrance free best

VENeffect

VENeffect

I will never understand why some cosmetic products are so highly fragranced. I do know that there’s a wide audience for lines like the French ones that have fragrance added but I don’t really get the draw. So many people (like MOI) have negative reactions to the added fragrance. Many can be a skin irritant if you have sensitive skin or rosacea.

When VENeffect offered their skincare line I was thrilled to say yes. I’ve tried several products from them and not only loved them but love the fact that I didn’t have to worry about fragrance. I’m so happy to welcome these back into my life again.veneffectThings to know about VENeffect:

  • The line was created by sisters (Dr. Rebecca Booth and Cecil Booth) who are both in the wellness business.
  • They discovered that women are affected by hormonal aging yet there was little in the way of solutions for it.
  • The Booth sisters created VENeffect as their breakthough anti-aging solution to reverse the signs of hormonal aging. Their goal – to restore skin to peak hormonal vitality.
  • VENeffect is the “only anti-aging skin care line formulated with a unique and powerful blend of 100% natural phytoestrogens to enhance collagen and improve elasticity in skin.”
  • VENeffect is hypoallergenic, synthetic fragrance free, gluten free, and paraben free. Made in the USA.

I’ve been using 3 VENeffect products while my blog partner Lisa has been using several others. Between the two of us you’ll be learning a lot about why we’re so impressed with these skincare wonders. Today you get me, Marcia.

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser (veneffect.com)

First they got me with the name since anything that will minimize my pores is wanted in my life. I used to have extremely oily skin. As I’ve aged my skin has become normal to dry but my pores still plague me.

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

The ingredients in this gel cleanser are what makes it a hit for me.

  • Willow bark helps minimize the appearance of pores, removes excess sebum, and fights shine
  • Phytoestrogens, including soy and pomegranate, enhance luminosity
  • Pomegranate enzymes remove dead skin cells, revealing healthy skin
  • Cucumber and grapefruit extracts refresh and renew
VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

The cleanser lathers nicely yet never makes my skin feel taut. Sadly I have to use a razor on my upper lip to remove the hair that should be on my eyebrows. I find this to be a perfect shave cream for my face since there’s no irritation and the razor just glides along. It’s too expensive to use anywhere else but it’s my face that I’m most concerned about.

VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer is a luxury I am absolutely savoring.

VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer

VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer

This anti-aging moisturizer is a fragrance free delight to use. It’s as light as whipped cream and just as rich. It feels so marvelous on my skin. In the morning I use a serum first, then apply VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer, and then a sunscreen. In the evening I use 1 or 2 serums and then this moisturizer. My face looks luminous and feels soft and hydrated. I can’t begin to tell you how much this has done for my skin.

  • Enhances skin’s elasticity
  • Phytoestrogens are known to boost collagen production
  • Promotes hyaluronic acid production, the building block of dewy young skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightens and evens out skin tone
  • Restores skin to the healthy glow of peak vitality

    VENeffect Anti-Aging Eye Treatment is the perfect finish to my trio. I am an adamant eye cream user and am willing to spend whatever it takes to have ones I love.

    Ingredients include Resveratrol, Antioxidants, Dimethicone, Biotin, Peptides, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera. This helps firm your undereye area and replenish the moisture around your eyes. Since your undereyes have the thinnest skin on your face you want to treat them with loving care.

    This doesn’t interfere with my makeup at all. I let it sit for a few minutes as I’m doing my eyes and then I’m ready to go with soft smoother and brighter skin under my eyes. At night I’m using a caffeine serum from The Ordinary first and then VENeffect Anti-Aging Eye Treatment and they work beautifully together.

I am happy to recommend this luxury line. The products help me hide my age from the masses and feel good about how my skin looks and feels. Fragrance be gone, long live VENeffect.  —  Marcia
